Abstract

Partial nephrectomy is the standard treatment for small renal masses. Currently, it is commonly performed using minimally invasive approaches, including laparoscopic and robot-assisted techniques. The aim of the present review is to report the surgical technique of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy in full detail as well as available literature results.
